My wife and I were waiting with bated breath to see how this rug is as we only saw a couple of pics to choose it. We were pleasently surprised with this rug as rug is beautiful and the tree bark section having a different feel (a little rough) than the other sections. The rug is so nice and it feels like a velvette to touch (every section except the brown section, which signifies the bark of a treee and its a little rough to feel). All in all, its a very uniue rug like which we have never seen in any stores. Worth a buy for the price paid!
